Having a plot twist is almost mandatory for movies nowadays. Viewers can be lulled into a sense of complacency only to be shocked by a sudden twist that seemingly comes out of nowhere. When done well, the plot twist is an amazing device; however, when done poorly, it can ruin a perfectly good movie. Here are 7 movies that were ruined by terrible plot twists:
7. I Am Legend
For a post-apocalyptic movie, I Am Legend didn’t disappoint – until the very the end. When the Darkseekers attack Neville’s house and he gives the cure for virus to Anna and Ethan and lets them escape, and then kills himself and the Darkseekers by blowing up his house, fans were disappointed. The movie ends with Anna and Ethan arriving at the survivor’s camp in Vermont with the cure – but it really should have ended with Neville arriving with them.
